Travel and tourism continues to recover after pandemic

Thursday, May 18, 2023


As per newest industry statistics, a projected 235 million tourists toured worldwide during the first three months of this year. Globally, the number of travelers reached 80% of the levels before the pandemic. Last year, 960 million people traveled overseas, signifying a revival of 66% of the pre-pandemic times.

As per a United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) report, global tourism earnings saw the $1
trillion mark last year, increasing 50% in actual terms compared to 2021, propelled by a recovery in global
travel. International visitor expenditure touched 64% of the levels before the pandemic.

According to the UNWTO Secretary-General, the beginning of this year has exhibited tourism’s
exceptional capability to rebound. In a lot of places, we are near enough or even beyond the levels before the pandemic in terms of arrivals. Nevertheless, we need to stay attentive to challenges ranging from geopolitical uncertainty, dearth in recruitment, and the possible influence of the cost-of-living predicament on tourism.

He said that we need to make sure that tourism’s rebound brings on its accountabilities as a resolution to
the climate crisis and a motivator of comprehensive growth.

At present, global tourism is on its course for making a full recovery, with more than double people traveling throughout the first quarter of this year compared to the equivalent time last year.
